Sitkan fights internet "spoof" with education

SITKA, ALASKA FBI statistics show that Alaskans are no more or less vulnerable to certain kinds of internet scams than Americans in more populated areas of the country.
Virtual criminals make no distinction about where their victims live, whether it’s an apartment in Manhattan, or an island in Southeast Alaska.
But one Sitka resident has decided that a good offense is the best defense against online identity theft. She’s decided to go public in the hope that others can take a lesson from her story.
